All links to unread threads in the thread list are leading to the first unread post. Sometimes I want to start reading an unread thread from the first post/page, and it's simply not possible without going to the first unread post and navigating to the first post from there.
It already does this? I'm confused as to what you're talking about here.
If you haven't read a thread, you'll land on page 1 and the first post. If you've read it before, you'll pick up where you last read the thread. What are you saying isn't happening that you'd like to happen?
you mean the page after your last read post. it makes it easy to go to the page after your last read page.
this will be the first template edit i will undertake, without a doubt. im not really one to try reteaching basic forum functionality to my users and im not up to the task of telling them how this is a better way of doing what already worked great for over a decade.
the next edit will be to move that infernal upload button. it is always located exactly in the wrong spot.
Same here,unless there was a reason to go to the first post in a thread.
IMO there should be more obvious link/button to go the first post in the thread instead of the timestamp, I didn't know the timestamp takes you to the first post in a thread till I started a thread like this one asking about how to go to the first post in a thread not to the first unread post.
